White Chocolate Cherry Shortbread

White Chocolate Cherry Shortbread

I first made these White Chocolate Cherry Shortbread cookies as my 279th recipe of 2010. For some reason, it’s taken me years to get around to making them again. Perhaps I forgot about them among all my recipes for brownies and rich bar cookies. And that’s […]

St. Louis Gooey Butter Cake

St. Louis Gooey Butter Cake

I’ve made St. Louis Gooey Butter Cake on this site more than once. But honestly, what’s one more recipe? In fact, this is the best recipe that I’ve tried yet. This recipe baked how it was supposed to, without being overdone, on the first try.

Chocolate Toffee Cracker Cookies

Chocolate Toffee Cracker Cookies

These Chocolate Toffee Cracker Cookies are seriously the best. They’re addictive. When I make these, Alex and I polish them off in about a day. Not only are they delicious; they take only 4 ingredients (5 if you top them with nuts), and you’re done […]

My Favorite Cookies – A recipe round-up

‘Tis the season for Cookie Exchanges! And cookies for yourself, and cookies for gifts, among lots of other sweets. Honestly, sometimes it seems like every week is time for cookies. I can live with that. Here’s some of my favorite cookie recipes, from this site. […]

Pecan Pie Cookies

Pecan Pie Cookies

I like pecan pie, but I don’t love it. Even at its best (and the pecan pie recipe I use turns out well whenever I make it), it’s a little too gooey for my taste. Pecans are my favorite nut, so I enjoy a slice, […]

Fudgy Bourbon Balls

Fudgy Bourbon Balls

Apple Pie Bars

Apple Pie Bars

The weather finally but briefly turned cooler in late September. We took advantage and drove an hour to pick apples. I don’t bother to use Amelia as an excuse. Sure, my 2-year-old had a lot of fun, but I go apple picking for me. I […]

Chewy Oatmeal Cookies

Chewy Oatmeal Cookies

My breakfast is boring, and has been for a while. I have a bowl of oatmeal every morning. Since having Amelia, I stick with old-fashioned oats over quick oats since they have the better texture. I love steel cut oats, but they take too long […]

Fudgy Butterscotch Bars

Fudgy Butterscotch Bars

These are butterscotch blondies with a layer of fudge in the middle. That’s really all the description you really need to be convinced to make these.

Lemon Bars

Lemon Bars

It’s spring, and one of the most cheerful and spring-like things I could think of to take to a recent party was the Lemon Bars recipe from Smitten Kitchen. I’ve made them before, but years ago, and I didn’t have the recipe actually written here […]
